Jucy, an 81-minute "chick buddy" comedy by Louise Alston, is about Jackie and Lucy – together nicknamed ‘Jucy’ – who spend all their time together, but not everyone approves of their "womance." Accused of being weird and co-dependent, they set out to prove their maturity. Jackie gets the guy and Lucy gets the job, but can their friendship survive their newfound independence?
Produced by KCDC’s Kelly Chapman, Jucy is the second instalment in Alston’s trilogy of “quarter-life crisis” films and will be globally represented by Odin’s Eye Entertainment.
The film will screen at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 11, 13 and 18 as part of the Contemporary World Cinema program.
